Lightning beat Bruins 3-2, improve to 2-0 in seeding round

TORONTO (AP) Tyler Johnson scored the tiebreaking goal with 87 seconds left to lead the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 3-2 victory over Boston on Wednesday and send the Presidents' Trophy-winning Bruins to their second straight loss in the NHL's playoff seeding round.

Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 25 shots for the Lightning, who improved to 2-0 in the three-game round-robin. Tampa Bay, which was second in the East with 92 regular-season points, would earn the top seed with a victory over Philadelphia on Saturday.

"At this point, I don't think anyone's really thinking about what happened in the pandemic-shortened regular season," Johnson said. "This is a whole new thing for us and we're trying to play the best hockey we can."
